Sandler Training awards $20,000 scholarship program to TNC Community

Kansas City, MO – Sandler Training, an international training and development organization; with local operations in Riverside, MO; dedicated to empowering people to create bottom-line growth in their lives and organizations; awarded its annual Non-Profit Scholarship Program for the entire 2013 training schedule to TNC Community, Harry S. Truman Children’s Neurological Center.

“Non-Profit Organizations frequently reach out to us for guidance in growth. Non-Profits give so much to our community and work so hard to help others, that sometimes they don’t have the resources left to help themselves. They don’t invest in training and development, because they feel like they would be taking money or resources away from hungry, sick or otherwise needy people. In reality, training and development with their staff can enable them to help many more people by growing their capabilities and resources. That’s why we are stepping up to make this choice easy for them.” said Steve Montague, President of Effective Sales Development, authorized franchisee for Sandler Training in Kansas City.

Sandler Training awarded the opportunity for James Landrum of TNC Community to receive a scholarship worth $20,000 of professional development training on January 1, 2013. The scholarship will include one full-year of the award winning Strategic Management Solutions Program, and one full-year of the President’s Club Professional Development Program, including Sandler Training’s business networking course. This is nearly 200 hours of live professional development training, as well as access to 1000’s of additional hours of audio and video training in Sander Online.

Non-Profit Organizations add tremendous value to the economy, community, and the people they serve around Kansas City. Regardless of the mission they have, almost every Non-Profit needs to generate revenue to sustain their efforts. Unfortunately, it is very common for them to realize they lack the resources to help to grow the organization, and help all the people in need. The visionary leadership who guide these Non-Profits frequently need to look outside the organization to find the help, and that’s where Sandler Training can assist them.

“We are excited to offer this opportunity. This scholarship program will allow TNC Community access to some the best interpersonal communication and business development resources available.” said Montague. “We have helped hundreds of companies grow their business over the last 18 years in Kansas City, and it will be honor to give back by helping a Non-Profit experience the same success.”

Applications for next year’s Non-Profit Scholarship will be accepted online at until December 1st, 2013. The top three applicants will be interviewed the first week of December by Sandler Training staff; the winner will be announced by December 15, 2013. The winner will be determined by the impact they will have on the community, the dedication they have to growth and embracing the opportunity for training, and the ability of Sandler Training to impact their specific challenges.
